Hello Survivors,

we have a new Experimental Update going live, including some hotfixes and minor additions. We are aware of several still existing issues and looking into them, but let us still know of all bugs you encounter!



  • It is highly recommended to use the Steam client option to verify the integrity of the local game cache to avoid corrupted data and control issues after downloading this update.
  • Consider de-fragmenting your HDD after downloading large updates.
  • In case of problems, please check the Bohemia Interactive support F.A.Q.DayZ F.A.Q., or BattlEye F.A.Q.
  • You can help us to further improve the game by posting your feedback on the Feedback Tracker.
